These are pages 8 through to 24 of a Stanton 1948 catalogue. As a photocopy of a photocopy, the
quality of the photographs has degraded but enough detail remains.
Each of the column types and various bracket options are shown; both line drawings and photographs in-situ. Each
page also features ongoing pictures of the erection of a 25 foot column and the damage to a column by a runaway
truck - these are reproduced in separate sections here.
The tale of the runaway lorry (which was in Alfreton Road, Nottingham) was also told in
Public Lighting #15, October 1939. In this piece,
pictures of the Nottingham and Leicester were also included.
Many thanks to Mike Ashworth for the photocopies.
Unsightly rusting can be caused by the use of corrosive metal clamps and signs fastened to columns. Where possible
non-ferrous clamps should be used.
If any doubt exists about the erection of columns, the Stanton Ironworks Company offer free service and advice.
Experienced men are available at short notice, who can demonstrate methods of erection at no extra cost.
